$15.00

Tameka Norris a.k.a. Meka Jean

Released in conjunction with “2 Freaky 2 Friday” at Pelican Bomb Gallery X, this limited-edition tote bag was created to celebrate Tameka Norris a.k.a. Meka Jean’s recently released Ivy League Ratchet EP. Norris’ album highlights her unique blend of high and low culture, contemporary art and hip-hop, academia and Southern vernacular. This cotton canvas tote, which includes lyrics from Norris’ song “Fourth Wave,” is the perfect bag for anyone who can get down after hitting the books all day.

Tameka Norris (b. 1979, Guam) is a multidisciplinary artist who explores the intersections of blackness, identity, and popular culture, often through the lens of her alter ego Meka Jean. Much of Norris’ art reflects on her own experiences working in the hip-hop industry in 2000s Los Angeles and her time as a graduate student at Yale School of Art. Her work has been shown at the Contemporary Art Museum Houston, the Studio Museum in Harlem, and the Contemporary Arts Center in New Orleans, among other places.
